Kegeling was invented by Dr. Arnold Kegel in 1948. He invented the exercise to help women who had given childbirth and were having resultant incontinence issues.
Kegeling is excellent at preventing urinary incontinence and fecal incontinence in women and men. It's used to prevent pelvic prolapse, which is when a woman's organs, such as her uterus, slips out of place. It can prevent prostate pain in men. Finally, it can make pushing easier and prevent hemorrhoids during childbirth.
Kegeling will strengthen orgasms and overall sexual pleasure for both men and women. It encourages blood flow, so it can also strengthen erections.
Kegeling exercises the pelvic floor muscles, including the pubococcygeus muscle, or PC muscle. The exercises potentially affect the urethra, vagina, cremaster muscle, testicles and anal canal.
